What do foodies do on a summer night? We head out to a great restaurant for food and drink then off to a movie about food with a bunch of other foodies. That's what. So, we began last night at Catalyst in Cambridge, where Chef and Owner William Kovell had prepared a buffet of cuisine with French and Indian twists, fresh Naan with summer vegetables, bites of duck and sips of wine.
Then we we walked about a hundred feet, or so, over to the Kendall Square Cinema for the premiere of THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY. Starring Helen Mirren, Om Puri (who steals the show), Manish Dayal and Charlotte Le Bon, and set in the visually lush French countryside, it is a story of two cultures melding through a joint love for food.
Needless to say, the preamble of cocktails and bites was Hollywood premiere worthy but the film is a gem for anyone who loves travel, cuisine and the joy of Michelin stars. The movie opens August 8th! Bon Appétit!
